Our Drivers’ Testimonies

These are real driver testimonies from truckers who have received financial assistance from St. Christopher Fund. Please read through them and see the positive impact we have had on their lives! If you want to submit your own story, please contact us.

We would like to sincerely thank you for what you do for drivers across this country.  We now know first hand how one injury can completely change your life and your financial stability.  We fully appreciate that my injury is short-term compared to some, but the financial strain and difficulty that has come with it has been intense and long-lived.  I am still non-weight-bearing and am technically fully disabled.  They do anticipate I will be able to start learning to walk again some time in the next month.  From there, they it will be a few months of recovery and therapy before I can get back to work full time.  We are thankful it isn’t worse than that.

driver with broken tibia

I am one of the drivers that SCF helped in 2018. Without the kindness of of them and all those who donate, I would have lost my car and my house. I personally would like to thank all of you that donate and help keep this organization going.  

driver with respiratory problems

Recently, you accepted my husband’s application for help and have already paid. I still can’t get over it. He has worked so many years on the road to support our family of nine. His damaged heart won’t allow it anymore. Thank you for helping us get through to the disability acceptance. I knew the Lord would work it out but had no idea you would be part of it. Thank you so very much!

driver with congestive heart failure

I just want to say Thank You All and God Bless You. You all have been a godsend to me and my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️. You all not only helped us financially but most importantly you guys renewed my faith in humanity. With so many people and places turning their backs on us at our worst time, you all opened your arms to us. I can’t thank you all enough. Thank You.

driver with COPD 

Please accept my sincere thanks for your financial assistance. You have allowed me a breather in the complicated world of unexpected illness. Every opportunity I get, I tell everyone on the road about the great deeds of kindness that you all provide. In a fast paced world you have proven to myself and my kids that there are good people who will help others. God bless you.

driver with back injury

Because of an awesome landlord, you at SCF and with faith and prayers, we will make it. Just wanted to say thank you again for helping us.

driver with hernia

I would like to thank you all and Shannon for the help a few years back. After being diagnosed with ESKD, your help relieved some of the financial pressure in order to get everything in place.  After two years of dialysis and extensive testing, I was finally listed with UNOS. Thanks and remember DONATE LIFE!

driver with end stage kidney failure

St. Christopher is SO MUCH more than a mission statement!!! When my husband was SO ILL, they gave SO MUCH more than JUST financial help!! I cried and lost it several times and EVERY TIME they listened, prayed with me, and helped ME get through a VERY terrifying time!!

driver with gall bladder complications resulting in sepsis

My husband and I would like to thank St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund for all of your help and support during my illness. We felt like we were drowning and now we can breathe again. We have a tough battle ahead and you guys made it a little easier. Thank You so much, guys!

driver with liver problems

Just want to thank everyone there for all your help SO  very much. God bless you!

driver with cancer

Thank you so much for all your help with the application process and for the help. I hope we stay in touch. Your organization has been a spot of light to our lives and we thank you again.

driver with congestive heart failure

First and foremost, thank you so much. You have no idea how much you are helping me and my family. I will forever be in debt to this organization. Thank you cannot be said enough.

driver with colon cancer

I want to thank you and your organization for the support you have shown my husband and my family during this time in need. I can’t thank your organization enough for this assistance. This has been a very hard time for my husband mentally and physically. With this assistance it is some relief. Stress taken off of his shoulders while he undergoes his treatment plans.

driver with heart problems

My husband was forced to stop working in October of 2016.  He applied for assistance from St. Christopher’s Fund and received it.  I can’t tell you how much help that was at the time.  He passed away on January 10, 2018, but I wanted to thank you for both of us for your help.  Wiley was a hard working man and a proud man.  It hurt to have to ask for help but he also realized it was time to forget the pride and receive help.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us when you did!

Wife of driver who passed away from pulmonary problems

THANK YOU SO MUCH!  You will never know how much of a relief that is to my wife and I to know that we do not have to worry about January rent or part of February!  You and your company are nothing short of a BLESSING!

After being in the hospital and off work for 10 weeks with Sepsis, I came across the Band Together Fund that was going on at the Petro.  I went online to check it out and applied. Dana, with the St. Christopher Fund contacted me. She was very friendly, helpful and quick. I want to thank you all for the help you provided in our time of need. Thank you again and God bless you.

Driver with sepsis

This past July I had a partial foot and toe amputation, not knowing how I would provide for my family because of the time being off of work for healing process. I couldn’t get help from anywhere because technically I was still employed. My wife and I prayed about it and we remembered that organization we donated by buying key rings and we actually had the St. Christopher’s key ring on our house key. We got on the St. Christopher’s website and applied for assistance.  A few weeks later we received an email saying they would help with a certain amount of money to pay our bills. We are very grateful for the St.Christopher organization. They were our angels in our time of need. This will be the organization I’ll most definitely donate to. They’re really there for you. I would like to also add that Mrs. Dana was the sweetest person and didn’t ever make us feel uncomfortable. She’s very helpful, always responded to our emails and calls. Thank you all St. Christopher’s for all you’ve done to help get my family through the roughest time in our lives. I suggest that all drivers keep this organization going by donating, many blessings to these wonderful staff.

Driver with amputation

This the blessing everyone needs when you think no one cares!  I was out of work for 5 weeks due to a allergic reaction to Trulicity that gave me acute pancreatitis. I had no income coming in and was about to lose my car when an angel put Truckers Fund in my life. I contacted another angel named Dana. They were angels to take such a burden from me. Believe, be positive and pray and God will put people like them in your life.  God Bless Dana and everyone involved.

Driver with acute pancreatitis

My son and I want to thank St. Christopher Truckers Fund for the help we received. It meant so much in a horribly painful time in our lives. My dear husband passed away at work in his truck. We miss him. Such kind people to work with here. Such a blessing!  Thank you again!

Wife of driver who passed away

My family would like to thank everyone at St.Christopher Fund for your support and assistance.

Driver with pulmonary embolism

Thanks to St. Christopher Truckers Fund for helping me pay 1 month of rent.  It was really a blessing  from God, through them. I was on my way to pick up my truck on July 17th. I passed out and had I had an accident. Since then I haven’t been able to work. It has been a very difficult time. Thanks again.

Driver with hip fracture

Thank you so very much for your assistance. God is great and we appreciate everyone that works for this organization. I hope that we can pay this forward in the future.

There are not enough ways to say THANK YOU  to St Christopher’s or to Dana!! When we FINALLY found out what was making Mark so deathly ill, turns  out it was something called Ostyeomyelitis, a rare bone eating infection, which then also caused a blood infection. The first thing Mark said was to get a hold of St Christopher’s!!! He always wears one of the wrist bands and always donates. Then it was us who needed help!!! Dana was so understanding and even when I wasn’t coherent, she knew what was needed!! They took the stress of our major bills, rent and electric , making it possible for me to just focus on getting Mark better!!!! We will never be able to say thank you enough!!

Wife of driver with osteomylitis

My family and I really can’t thank you guys enough! I was shot 3 times in my own home while confronting a robber,  which broke my femur… being outta work.. we gave up our home and moved in with family so I could try to keep up on my truck that I worked so hard to get.  Despite our efforts I was really close to losing it. But thanks to the St. Christopher fund I still have it! After my knee surgery I’m looking forward to getting back to trucking and giving back to the St. Christopher fund! Thank you!!

Driver shot during home invasion

It was never in my wildest dreams that I myself would one day be needing assistance from the St. Christopher Fund, which paid two of my bills.  It gave me a chance to hopefully, find work that was not so demanding on my spine. I had to end my career early with two very prestigious trucking companies, due multiple spinal complications. I have to also give thanks to the N Chicago VA for my fine medical care.  I purchased my bracelet at the TA location.

Driver with spinal injury

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Without you people helping me and my wife after my triple bypass surgery and me not being able to work until maybe October, we would have lost everything .You have helped us make it through a very hard time. We have no income. You people are truly amazing. You’re God’s angels. Thank you for helping truckers. When I get back to work I am going to donate so you keep helping other truckers like you helped me and I’m going to spread the word to help donate to the truckers fund. You people don’t no how truly amazing you are. Thank you.

Driver with heart attack

January 16th 2017 will forever be etched in my mind. It’s the day my children and I were told my husband of 26 years had bleeding on the brain. Tests later in the day revealed it was a 15 cm brain tumor. My husband has worked since he was a young teenage boy and has driven a truck for over 17 years. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom and homemaker most of our married life and in just one day our world was turned upside down and changed forever. Since then my husband had surgery to remove”most” of the tumor. As I write this he is receiving radiation to try and stop any that was left from spreading. St. Christopher stepped in almost immediately in February and  paid 3 months mortgage and one month’s electric bill. Not having to worry about losing our home during those months on top of everything else is something we could never thank them enough for. I pray God blesses each and every of them and every one who gives to them so they can continue to help families in need. You people are awesome and you will forever have a special place in the hearts of the Brown household.

Forever and always, a truck drivers wife

Wife of a driver with cancer

I want to thank you. You helped me when no one else would. You are amazing people. You saved our car. I can’t thank you enough. I had open heart triple bypass surgery, was unable to work, was about to lose everything and you helped me. You people care about truckers. When I am able to work again, I am going to donate so you can help others like you helped me. Thank you.

Driver who had a heart attack

We want to express our appreciation for the grant you blessed us with when things have been so difficult and uncertain. It gave us a safe, secure place to stay as ***** goes through his kidney transplant rejection and we wait for a new kidney. It has truly been an adjustment from being in the truck every day to sitting still again. Please know how much you all are appreciated.

Kidney transplant recipient

 

WOW! Just wow. We weren’t sure that I could go ahead and have my surgery. I have a hernia, actually 2 that are need of repair asap. Was trying to wait until my husband was approved for SSI.  I kept pushing myself so we wouldn’t be homeless. On top of all that, we have guardianship of two grandkids. Scary to think that we won’t have a home for them. A friend told me about Truckers Fund. I put in my app. It only took them less then a week to respond and have a answer for me. WOW! They are amazing. They responded fast and we were relieved knowing that everything will be ok. I also am excited to learn they will help to get truckers back to work while being trained. Wish I had known about this help sooner. I would have taken the training for a new job. I may still. Not sure even after my surgery ill be able to go back to driving. I am so pleased with the positive attitude and encouragement the staff gave me. I thank you all so much for being here to help us truckers and families. I definitely will be asking my company to sponsor and passing the word for donations. Thank you again.

Driver with hernia

Thank you again for your help! Without you, we were looking at possibly having all 5 of the grandkids placed into foster care. St. Christopher’s Truckers Fund has given us a window of time to prevent that from happening.  Your organization has been a blessing to us and we are very grateful for your help.

Driver with shoulder injury

God is amazing! Thank you for all of your help! We are so humbled and grateful-we have cried our eyes out. We will use the money for our rent. You have no idea what a blessing this has been to us.

Driver with broken leg

Thank you to St Christopher Truckers Relief Fund for helping us out. My husband has been a trucker for 25+ years and became very ill  with anaplastic large cell lymphoma and is under going chemo. Because of you’re generosity we were able to catch up on some of our household bills. Thank you.

Driver with cancer

Thank you for paying our house note and power bill. This allowed us to stay in our house another month and relieved so much stress.We are grateful. You are truly “God in shoes”.  God bless you all!

Driver with kidney surgery

My husband, William, is an OTR Driver and our only source of income as I am disabled with Lupus and other related diseases. We have three minor children who still live at home and my husband supports us all. About 2 months ago he became ill with pneumonia primarily and was out of work for 2-1/2 weeks. A friend of his who is also a trucker commented on social media that we should contact the Saint Christopher Trucker’s Fund for assistance. We tried to work things out so that we didn’t need help but in the end we just could not make the numbers add up. We contacted the Truckers Fund and advised of our situation, submitted some minor paperwork and within days was advised that we would receive benefits. What a stress relief! I don’t know where we would be without the assistance provided. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and God Bless you for the work you do.

Driver with pneumonia

I’ve been a trucker since 1988. I’ve had health issues since 1997 since my back was broken. Every time I get better, I go back to driving. This last spinal injury ended my career. Thank you St Christopher Fund for your assistance. I went 6 weeks without income. My company didn’t care, but you did.

Driver with spinal injury

You have impacted my life greatly since I had a heart attack in Denver in January your charity came thru and helped our family with bills I couldn’t cover. I will be forever indebted to your organization.

Driver with heart attack

I just wanted to reach out to you all to thank you for your support during this difficult time. Often times, I’m the one people come running to when they need help and this time it was I that needed help. When I would reach out to others for a favor in getting help….it didn’t happen but when I contacted you all, I found compassion and help in my time of need. I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me on my rent, electric, and auto ins.Because of your help, I get to stay in my home and have power, and no lapse in auto ins. Thank you so much for the help. You all do such a great job at being there for others that you should pat yourselves on the back. May the blessings of God rain upon you all like raindrops..

Driver with broken ankle

It’s hard for me to put into words how grateful I am to your organization. I lost my Job in October and we found out a week before Christmas that my husband (a Truck Driver) had to have emergency surgery to remove a mass from his liver.  Being that his was our only income, you could say we were stressed about our monthly bills and how we would be able to pay them.  Thanks to St. Christopher’s we were able to breathe easier with the help given.  You truly are remarkable and we thank you for the bottom of our hearts.  It’s because of you that we are still living in our beautiful home where my husband was able to recover and get healthy again.  Thank You so much!

Wife of a driver who had surgery

Thank you so very much, maybe I won’t stress so bad now. You guys are lifesavers.

Driver with broken shoulder

I have donated for years never thinking of myself being in need. I’m humbled & grateful in this time of real need for my family. For me, the support coming from my industry warms this Independent’s heart. Humbled, I say thank you….

Driver with syncope

We often made contributions in cash at various events that were going towards this fund. Who knew that one day we would be on the receiving end due to that NASTY cancer?

Tears fill our eyes and smiles in our hearts. Without help from this fund and others, we don’t know how we would get to this point without losing everything.

Merry Christmas!

Blessings to all who have helped, are helping and will continue to help!

Driver with cancer

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a wonderful organization, because of you we can squeak by another month while we go thru this financial hardship.

Driver with shoulder injury

 

Thank you so much & God bless you & St Christopher Fund!!  We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas (you are some of God’s angels!!)

Driver who had a stroke

 

We sincerely appreciate what the St. Christopher Fund has done for us.  We’ve shared the site on our social media outlets and will continue to advocate for you.  Thank you again!

Driver with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Thank you for all you do. When my hubby was sick and needed surgery in August you were there for us. We appreciate you more than you ever know.

bladder surgery

I want to thank you for the work that you do. My husband had a major stroke which ended his trucking career and at the time I wasn’t working and begging companies to please hire me. It was roughest time of my life. Your organization helped me and you have no idea how much we appreciated and needed your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless you and your organization.

Driver with stroke

I would just like to say thank you from both my husband and myself from the bottom of our hearts. My husband has been fighting colon rectal cancer now for 9 years. It has gone first to his lungs and just recently they found a mass on his cerebellum.  He had surgery to remove the mass and it was successful. But, because of the trauma his body has been through in the last year, he is having a very hard time bouncing back.  He is hoping that he can get strong enough to go back to the job that he really loves. Your help at this time has been a God-send. If it wasn’t for your help, we would not have had electricity or a roof over our head.  God Bless you and those that are involved with this great endeavor. We will definitely be encouraging others to donate to this great helping cause. Again, Thank You.

Driver with cancer

We can not express our thankfulness for your generosity.   This has taken a great weight off our shoulders. We cried with relief and appreciation.   I thank you for your prayers. When they say the brotherhood is gone from trucking, that  is incorrect.  This is brotherhood.  This is a miracle to us. Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.

Driver with kidney problems

Thank you once again for the generous gift to help me with my financial responsibilities during my fight with Cancer. This money will be used toward paying my mortgage payment and sure takes a load off worrying about how I would pay this bill.

Driver with cancer

THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY HOUSE FROM DEFAULT. YO AND WHAT YOU DO IS A BLESSING! THANK YOU!

Driver with congestive heart failure

Thank you Julie for helping my wife and I. She passed a year ago June 28th. Just thought I’d let you know. She requested hospice. But your organization helped us in our time of need. You took one stressor off the table. I can’t thank you enough. And you personally were very kind to me.

Driver who's wife died of cancer

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for your financial help with my bills. I had to have a 5 way emergency heart bypass and am not able to work for 3 months. Without your support and caring ,I may have ended up homeless. Thank you so VERY much for your help!! You are a true Godsend and true blessing!! Thank you…

Driver with heart surgery

Thank you so much for all the financial assistance you have given me during my cancer treatments: radiation, chemo therapy and rehabilitation. I hope to return to driving full time within six months with my Multiple Myeloma in complete remission. When I drive, I listen to Tim Ridley every day. I  look forward to sharing my story of how you have helped me. I have all ready told several others how you have been a true blessing to me and how you have helped me after 46 years in business. I am continuing to fight the good fight and getting better thanks to your help.

Driver with cancer

I am so grateful for this truckers fund! They are truly a blessing to me and saved me from being homeless. After leaving the hospital I lost my job and medical benefits and was completely overwhelmed with bills medical costs etc. but st. Christopher worked with me and help saved my home and now I’m caught up with other things. Only sad thing is I may never drive trucks due to my illness but my love for trucking will never die! A few friends got together and helped me get a driver for my truck so my legacy will continue! Again, I thank this wonderful organization for all they have done and will urge all my trucking family to donate!

Driver with bleeding disorder

I cannot Thank you and this organization enough! Terry’s passing has been extremely hard and the financial burden on top has made it extremely harder. I know Terry looks down and grins as he was very grateful for your organization and the help.It may take a little time to pick these pieces back up and piece them together but with Gods help and people like you and this organization it greatly helps to do so.

Wife of a driver who passed away

Thank you so much to the wonderful people at St. Christopher Truckers Fund.  I have been out of work since March and unable to keep my bills paid.  St. Christopher’s Truck Fund has helped us so much.  It is really touching to know that someone out there cares. It is a scary position to be in, not knowing when you can go back to work and how you are going to make ends meet.  These people are caring and they don’t look down on you for needing help.  My many thanks to them.

Driver with kidney stones

You helped me a couple of years ago when I had no where else to turn. Thank you for what you do. Your organization is one who truly does help drivers!

Driver with respiratory problems

My brother was helped by you nearly 3 years ago after suffering a stroke while driving his truck.  He is now stable and able to live on his own.  Although he cannot work, he is managing to get by.  Without your help and the help of many others along the way, God only knows where he would be today.  He is very thankful for the help and support of fellow truckers.  God bless you and your work.

Driver who had a stroke

I Would Like To Say Thank You Again For Y’all Help I was Really Humbled By The Help I Received. I Was Always The One Who Helped Not The One That Needed Help. Please Pass On A Heart Felt Thank You To  Dr. John And Every One At Truckers Fund.

Driver with heart attack

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for everything you did to help our family during our time or crisis. My husband has been able to go back to work, although he has required additional surgery. Your organization is amazing & if there is any way we can help spread the word, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Driver with ruptured spleen

You helped us a couple years ago when Robert  had his strokes.We are doing a lot better now and standing on our own two feet as they say. You guys helped us a lot and if we didnt receive that help we may have lost our home.

Driver who had a stroke

We will always be appreciative of the assistance you gave us.  It was a rough time but thanks to your kindness we were able to face some of the bills and be able to keep on track.

Driver with liver transplant

Thank you so much for your help in getting my meds. It is greatly appreciated

Driver who had quadruple bypass

If it wasn’t for the St. Christopher Fund and the VA I’m not sure how me and family would have made it. I’ve recovered well and back to work

Driver with hand surgery

I became unable to work and OTR work is all I know and have known. I looked for ways to get help from other places and got “No” help.  Then I found St. Christopher Truckers Fund. Thank you very much for helping me; not only me, but my family in our time of need.  If it weren’t for you, our family would be on the street. Again, you are a blessing! Thank you!

Driver with neuropathy

I would like to thank everyone at St. Christopher! Your staff is amazing!

Debi Cross family

  My Husband Had a major major heart attack the one they call the Widowmaker. His heart stopped and EMS brought him back to life. He wasn’t at work when it happened and there was nothing to cover anything financially we were a paycheck to paycheck family. He had heard of st. Christopher’s XM Radio I gave it a try we are nearly homeless as nothing else we could do but worry which the doctor told him not to do. This Fund helped us to save our home. we are so grateful and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! May God bless St.Christopher’s Truckers Fund in abundance is our prayer. Thank you so much.

Wife of a deceased driver

I been grieving the loss of my best friend, soulmate & the love of my life.  I’ve had to deal with stress/worry over finances. I don’t know if you all realize what you truly do for people or not, but not only are you helping me & my kids during the worst time of our lives, you’ve shown me that they’re still good people in this world and have given me a reason to believe again. You all have given me a glimmer of hope in what has been the most hopeless situation. Thank you!! I will most definitely be spreading the word about what a wonderful organization you have. I will also do whatever I can when this is over to help convince people to donate to such an extraordinary organization. I could never thank you all enough. God bless each of you & I pray for the safety and wellbeing of all of Chris’ fellow truck driving family

wife of driver who passed away

Thank you just sounds so shallow. God bless you and all the truckers. I promise I will spend the rest of my life telling of your help.

Driver with heart problems

After driving for almost 30 years, I’ve had to come off the road due to heart problems. My last day that I worked was in May 2015. Had a quad bypass operation in July and had an ICD implant this past Feb. Unfortunately I can’t drive commercially with an ICD. Medical bills were piling up and it was a struggle to even make the necessary monthly bills. St. Christopher Fund stepped in a provided enough money to make payment on our monthly bills and give me a head start on next month’s. I am thankful for their help in this difficult time.

Driver with ICD implant

Thank you for helping me in my time of need. When my appendix ruptured, you saved me more ways than one. I gain extra love from people I share Gods love to on road and would not have been able if it weren’t for your help. THANK YOU!

Driver with ruptured appendix

I wish I could be there at MATS to personally thank you for the help that you folks at the ST. CHRISTOPHER FUND had given to me during these hard times that I have been in. I am currently starting to get back into the working phase of my career and hope to recover from what has happened to me these past months. I will continue to support the ST. CHRISTOPHER FUND with my donations so that other drivers who are needier than myself can be helped by good folks as yourself, and the drivers, who have unselfishly donated to this cause over time, so that you’re able to help other drivers like myself in times of need. So, to you folks, I tip my hat and again, thanks for the help, and for the service you provide.

Thanks for the generosity and help at a time when needed. It gas given me the time to get proper medical care to help with a catastrophic series of illnesses. The best people around! Thanks

We would like to say how blessed we are to have been helped throughout my freak accident when my foot was amputated October 17, 2015. We can’t say enough thanks to the St Christopher Fund for the bill assistance.Lawrence Wyatt

Billy LyonsThis driver is a cancer survivor, as well as, having a heart attack recently.  SCF was able to offer him financial assistance to get him back on his feet.

With the help of paying those 2 bills, it will give us the break that we so desperately need to finally be able to get the rest caught up to current status and Lord willing, stay caught up from here on out. Every year I’ve always bought numerous bracelets and key chains from TA/Petro locations to hand out to family and friends. It was never in my wildest dreams that I myself would one day be needing assistance from this AWESOME organization. I will be spreading the word to all that will listen in regards to you all.

Driver with spinal injury

Jack Hollowayjack holloway family We would like to graciously thank the St. Christophers Truckers Fund for helping relieve our financial burden after Jack’s surgeries. Jack is a loving husband,  father of 3 boys, with the 4th due in January. Jack is a certified trainer, May Central driver of the year, for JB Hunt Transportion. Unexpectedly,  at the end of August, Jack started to feel very weak, out of breath and just not himself. Luckily, he was on home time when his symptoms started. I rushed him to the hospital,  where it was determined that he needed 3 surgeries,  within 6 days.  These surgeries included a catheterization, open heart surgery with a valve replacement and a pacemaker revision. He spent a total of 15 days in the hospital,  with 6 of those in the ICU. He will be off work for 3 months and the Truckers Fund provided us with  bill assistance. The fund was easy to work with and very quick. On behalf of the entire Holloway family,  we’d like to say Thank You.

Ava Vinson Ava is our 1st child.  She’s two months 14 days old. She was  born full term, very sick.  It was unexpected.  We are holding up.  We are not home from the hospital. Our Ronald McDonald stay is up so we are back to our commute, 90 milis a day to see Ava. She’s at Blythedale Children’s Hospital for rehabilitation, working with her muscular tone and bottle feeding.  She has a g-tube but is taking the bottle slowly. Ava’s next surgery is in July which is for the craniosynostos. Her skull fused too early and it’s putting pressure on her brain. Since her last surgery was rough, the doctors are prepping us for the worst.  There is talk of getting Ava home in a week or two to enjoy a few weeks at home before the surgery,  Ava is great today. She is  starting to move her head more and more. We have faith in God. Doug is looking for work but is having a hard time finding something flexible.  Doug is trying to stay local to find a job.  You guys helped out with our rent.  We are working out June rent, and all the other bills. It’s hard but we have faith and it’s the best to get through this.  Thank you for looking out for us. Thank you for the prayers. Thank you for everything.  #teamavastrong

Let me take this time to thank everyone of you that has been willing to stand behind me and help me out of a hole that I was thinking that I was never going to be able to crawl out of. If it would not have been for you all helping me out in my time of need, I would be out on the street by the end of the month with no place to live. The help that you and your fund have given me by helping me with my rent while I have been going through treatment has saved me from worry about where I was going to live by the end of the month. Thanks again and God Bless you all at Truckers Fund!

To Tonya Love I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for the assistance. Your last name is no coincidence.

Driver with neck & shoulder injury

Thanks for your help in my and my families time of need. I was on the road when my appendix started to give me problems. I had to have immediate surgery in Nashville,TN. Even though I had insurance I did not have short term disability insurance at the time. Being off work for a while I didn’t know how I was going to pay rent. YOU ALL CAME THROUGH TO HELP ME. ***THANK YOU *** AND THANK YOU to all TRUCKERS and others to help me in my time of need.

I would like to say Thank you for the help you gave to my family when I had to go on medical leave. My story goes like this: I came home for a couple days off. I was not feeling well; it was as if I was having trouble with my gallbladder. My son took me took the Emergency Room. They did a CT Scan and immediately sent me to the main ST. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis where 2 days later I was diagnosed with Cancer. Exactly 1 week later I was told I had stage 4 lung cancer, with it being in other areas also. The team In your office was quick to do their best and help me with funds to get through the 1st month until my disability insurance started.

I’m soooo thrilled I don’t know what to say. This is such a blessing!!! Thank God!!! Again….there are not enough words to Thank You. I have not slept in good in a long time wondering if we were going to be homeless next month because we couldn’t pay the house payment. This will give us another month. The Good Lord has helped us this far so I’m holding on to my faith and praying.

Thank you St. Christopher Fund!

Thank you and your team for the help you are willing to give me in such a timely manner. It will really help us out and we do appreciate it.

I’ve been driving since 93 first class B asphalt for my dad’s business then over the road when I was 21 on and off. I decided to drive OTR to support my growing family in 2012. On June 11, 2014 I went for a physical because I’d been feeling like I had the flu and dropping Lbs since January of that year. I went from 230 down to 160. It was a Wednesday afternoon and I went on my second run for Gm to Kansas City from Flint. As I arrived in Kansas City on the 12th my dispatch and boss kept calling me  asking how I was doing and where exactly I was at. I told them on 35 south just past the Pilot in  Karney, Mo when an ambulance and state trooper pulled me over and a driver for the company hopped in my truck. The medic said I was bad and to go with them asap.  As I arrived at Liberty Medical Center they informed me I had leukemia and my blood hemoglobin was 3 and at level 5 you have a heart attack and die.  Little did I know that was to be my last ride in a rig.They set me up after 5 days of blood infusions and iron with a flight home. While in Liberty the social worker gave me a print out with the Saint Christopher’s Fund info on it. I’ve heard it advertised on xm and red eye radio a few times and donated at different truck stops but never thought you’d all save my family’s home not once but twice. Me and Elisa were married on Dec 31 with Jacob age 5 Tanner age 4 and Olivia age 2 now, there with family and friends.With the prayers and support I continue to battle cancer hoping to one day drive again.Thank you all for the prayers and the help you gave my family.

I am so happy – I CAN SEE!!  Thank you so much for this help! We are so blessed to have you working for us in this desperate chapter in our lives! I cannot express the gratitude I feel!    Thank y’all so very much and God bless you.

Driver, after cataract surgery

We would like to say thank you to the St. Christopher Fund. My husband Bill had been driving for 20 yrs until he was diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in September 2014. This is a progressive non curable disease. Upon finding this out this is a disqualifying condition for driving a commercial vehicle he had to stop driving. Unable to work due to his condition, we became a one income family. Needing help we thought about the bracelets we had bought to help the St. Christopher for many years reminding us there was help out there. After the first call we were in contact with Shannon within 24 hrs and had the process started. We are now able to keep a roof over our heads until social security disability is approved. Thank you again for caring for our truck driving family! Bless you.

Thanks so much! We really needed this help. We greatly appreciate all your fund has done for us. I don’t know what we would have done without you folks!  Thank you is not nearly enough but please know how much we truly appreciate all of your help and compassion.

Thank You Shannon and everyone at ST CHRISTOPHER FUND for your generosity and the help you have given my family in our time of need.You are the only charity fund that helped us and for that we are thankful.Every little bit helps in a time of need. Again thanks to all and happy holidays. Okay people, PLEASE give to St Christopher fund, even if it’s only 1 dollar.  If not for them, we would not have been able to survive my 2 months off of work. They really are a Godsend. The next time you are in a Petro or T/A and they ask you to buy a bracelet, you can be assured that the money really does go to help truck drivers.

HonerkampAgain….there are not enough words to Thank You. I have not slept good in a long time wondering if we were going to be homeless next month because we couldn’t pay the house payment. This will give us another month. The Good Lord has helped us this far so I’m holding on to my faith and praying. I will definItely mention St. Christopher Truckers Fund to everyone I know!!!

Thank you and the St. Christopher Fund for helping us during this most difficult time of need.  Not only did you review and approve our case expediently, you made a big difference.  The offering that you are giving to us will help us get caught up on our house payments that we are behind on.  Words alone cannot express how much we appreciate the help.  The tests that we have gone through this past year has become a true testimony.   Thank  you for the blessing, St. Christopher Fund!

I would like to say thank you Julie for your help.  Your group are my angels.  Thank you so very much!!!

Scott Lavigne   Thank you so much.  Your kindness will allow us to buy some time as we work to climb out of the hole.

Walter Hill Thanks again for the help!

Please donate to this organization! The help they are giving me is a blessing from God!

Driver who had heart attack

Thank you for your help last year with our rent!  It was a blessing.

Driver with peripheral artery disease

Recently, you accepted my husband’s, application for help and have already paid. I still can’t get over it. He has worked so many years on the road to support our family of nine. His damaged heart won’t allow it anymore. Thank you for helping us get through to the disability acceptance. I knew the Lord would work it out but had no idea you would be part of it. Thank you so very much! Michelle Harper

driver with heart failure

We would like to sincerely thank you for what you do for drivers across this country.  We now know first hand how one injury can completely change your life and your financial stability.  We fully appreciate that my injury is short-term compared to some, but the financial strain and difficulty that has come with it has been intense and long-lived.  I am still non-weight-bearing and am technically fully disabled.  They do anticipate I will be able to start learning to walk again some time in the next month.  From there, they it will be a few months of recovery and therapy before I can get back to work full time.  We are thankful it isn’t worse than that.

driver with broken tibia

I am one of the drivers that SCF helped in 2018. Without the kindness of of them and all those who donate, I would have lost my car and my house. I personally would like to thank all of you that donate and help keep this organization going.  

driver with respiratory problems

I just want to say Thank You All and God Bless You. You all have been a godsend to me and my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️. You all not only helped us financially but most importantly you guys renewed my faith in humanity. With so many people and places turning their backs on us at our worst time, you all opened your arms to us. I can’t thank you all enough. Thank You.

driver with COPD 

Please accept my sincere thanks for your financial assistance. You have allowed me a breather in the complicated world of unexpected illness. Every opportunity I get, I tell everyone on the road about the great deeds of kindness that you all provide. In a fast paced world you have proven to myself and my kids that there are good people who will help others. God bless you.

driver with back injury

Because of an awesome landlord, you at SCF and with faith and prayers, we will make it. Just wanted to say thank you again for helping us.

driver with hernia

I would like to thank you all and Shannon for the help a few years back. After being diagnosed with ESKD, your help relieved some of the financial pressure in order to get everything in place.  After two years of dialysis and extensive testing, I was finally listed with UNOS. Thanks and remember DONATE LIFE!

driver with end stage kidney failure

St. Christopher is SO MUCH more than a mission statement!!! When my husband was SO ILL, they gave SO MUCH more than JUST financial help!! I cried and lost it several times and EVERY TIME they listened, prayed with me, and helped ME get through a VERY terrifying time!!

driver with gall bladder complications resulting in sepsis

My husband and I would like to thank St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund for all of your help and support during my illness. We felt like we were drowning and now we can breathe again. We have a tough battle ahead and you guys made it a little easier. Thank You so much, guys!

driver with liver problems

Just want to thank everyone there for all your help SO  very much. God bless you!

driver with cancer

Thank you so much for all your help with the application process and for the help. I hope we stay in touch. Your organization has been a spot of light to our lives and we thank you again.

driver with congestive heart failure

First and foremost, thank you so much. You have no idea how much you are helping me and my family. I will forever be in debt to this organization. Thank you cannot be said enough.

driver with colon cancer

I want to thank you and your organization for the support you have shown my husband and my family during this time in need. I can’t thank your organization enough for this assistance. This has been a very hard time for my husband mentally and physically. With this assistance it is some relief. Stress taken off of his shoulders while he undergoes his treatment plans.

driver with heart problems

My husband was forced to stop working in October of 2016.  He applied for assistance from St. Christopher’s Fund and received it.  I can’t tell you how much help that was at the time.  He passed away on January 10, 2018, but I wanted to thank you for both of us for your help.  Wiley was a hard working man and a proud man.  It hurt to have to ask for help but he also realized it was time to forget the pride and receive help.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us when you did!

Wife of driver who passed away from pulmonary problems

THANK YOU SO MUCH!  You will never know how much of a relief that is to my wife and I to know that we do not have to worry about January rent or part of February!  You and your company are nothing short of a BLESSING!

After being in the hospital and off work for 10 weeks with Sepsis, I came across the Band Together Fund that was going on at the Petro.  I went online to check it out and applied. Dana, with the St. Christopher Fund contacted me. She was very friendly, helpful and quick. I want to thank you all for the help you provided in our time of need. Thank you again and God bless you.

Driver with sepsis

This past July I had a partial foot and toe amputation, not knowing how I would provide for my family because of the time being off of work for healing process. I couldn’t get help from anywhere because technically I was still employed. My wife and I prayed about it and we remembered that organization we donated by buying key rings and we actually had the St. Christopher’s key ring on our house key. We got on the St. Christopher’s website and applied for assistance.  A few weeks later we received an email saying they would help with a certain amount of money to pay our bills. We are very grateful for the St.Christopher organization. They were our angels in our time of need. This will be the organization I’ll most definitely donate to. They’re really there for you. I would like to also add that Mrs. Dana was the sweetest person and didn’t ever make us feel uncomfortable. She’s very helpful, always responded to our emails and calls. Thank you all St. Christopher’s for all you’ve done to help get my family through the roughest time in our lives. I suggest that all drivers keep this organization going by donating, many blessings to these wonderful staff.

Driver with amputation

This the blessing everyone needs when you think no one cares!  I was out of work for 5 weeks due to a allergic reaction to Trulicity that gave me acute pancreatitis. I had no income coming in and was about to lose my car when an angel put Truckers Fund in my life. I contacted another angel named Dana. They were angels to take such a burden from me. Believe, be positive and pray and God will put people like them in your life.  God Bless Dana and everyone involved.

Driver with acute pancreatitis

My son and I want to thank St. Christopher Truckers Fund for the help we received. It meant so much in a horribly painful time in our lives. My dear husband passed away at work in his truck. We miss him. Such kind people to work with here. Such a blessing!  Thank you again!

Wife of driver who passed away

My family would like to thank everyone at St.Christopher Fund for your support and assistance.

Driver with pulmonary embolism

Thanks to St. Christopher Truckers Fund for helping me pay 1 month of rent.  It was really a blessing  from God, through them. I was on my way to pick up my truck on July 17th. I passed out and had I had an accident. Since then I haven’t been able to work. It has been a very difficult time. Thanks again.

Driver with hip fracture

Thank you so very much for your assistance. God is great and we appreciate everyone that works for this organization. I hope that we can pay this forward in the future.

There are not enough ways to say THANK YOU  to St Christopher’s or to Dana!! When we FINALLY found out what was making Mark so deathly ill, turns  out it was something called Ostyeomyelitis, a rare bone eating infection, which then also caused a blood infection. The first thing Mark said was to get a hold of St Christopher’s!!! He always wears one of the wrist bands and always donates. Then it was us who needed help!!! Dana was so understanding and even when I wasn’t coherent, she knew what was needed!! They took the stress of our major bills, rent and electric , making it possible for me to just focus on getting Mark better!!!! We will never be able to say thank you enough!!

Wife of driver with osteomylitis

My family and I really can’t thank you guys enough! I was shot 3 times in my own home while confronting a robber,  which broke my femur… being outta work.. we gave up our home and moved in with family so I could try to keep up on my truck that I worked so hard to get.  Despite our efforts I was really close to losing it. But thanks to the St. Christopher fund I still have it! After my knee surgery I’m looking forward to getting back to trucking and giving back to the St. Christopher fund! Thank you!!

Driver shot during home invasion

It was never in my wildest dreams that I myself would one day be needing assistance from the St. Christopher Fund, which paid two of my bills.  It gave me a chance to hopefully, find work that was not so demanding on my spine. I had to end my career early with two very prestigious trucking companies, due multiple spinal complications. I have to also give thanks to the N Chicago VA for my fine medical care.  I purchased my bracelet at the TA location.

Driver with spinal injury

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Without you people helping me and my wife after my triple bypass surgery and me not being able to work until maybe October, we would have lost everything .You have helped us make it through a very hard time. We have no income. You people are truly amazing. You’re God’s angels. Thank you for helping truckers. When I get back to work I am going to donate so you keep helping other truckers like you helped me and I’m going to spread the word to help donate to the truckers fund. You people don’t no how truly amazing you are. Thank you.

Driver with heart attack

January 16th 2017 will forever be etched in my mind. It’s the day my children and I were told my husband of 26 years had bleeding on the brain. Tests later in the day revealed it was a 15 cm brain tumor. My husband has worked since he was a young teenage boy and has driven a truck for over 17 years. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom and homemaker most of our married life and in just one day our world was turned upside down and changed forever. Since then my husband had surgery to remove”most” of the tumor. As I write this he is receiving radiation to try and stop any that was left from spreading. St. Christopher stepped in almost immediately in February and  paid 3 months mortgage and one month’s electric bill. Not having to worry about losing our home during those months on top of everything else is something we could never thank them enough for. I pray God blesses each and every of them and every one who gives to them so they can continue to help families in need. You people are awesome and you will forever have a special place in the hearts of the Brown household.

Forever and always, a truck drivers wife

Wife of a driver with cancer

I want to thank you. You helped me when no one else would. You are amazing people. You saved our car. I can’t thank you enough. I had open heart triple bypass surgery, was unable to work, was about to lose everything and you helped me. You people care about truckers. When I am able to work again, I am going to donate so you can help others like you helped me. Thank you.

Driver who had a heart attack

We want to express our appreciation for the grant you blessed us with when things have been so difficult and uncertain. It gave us a safe, secure place to stay as ***** goes through his kidney transplant rejection and we wait for a new kidney. It has truly been an adjustment from being in the truck every day to sitting still again. Please know how much you all are appreciated.

Kidney transplant recipient

 

WOW! Just wow. We weren’t sure that I could go ahead and have my surgery. I have a hernia, actually 2 that are need of repair asap. Was trying to wait until my husband was approved for SSI.  I kept pushing myself so we wouldn’t be homeless. On top of all that, we have guardianship of two grandkids. Scary to think that we won’t have a home for them. A friend told me about Truckers Fund. I put in my app. It only took them less then a week to respond and have a answer for me. WOW! They are amazing. They responded fast and we were relieved knowing that everything will be ok. I also am excited to learn they will help to get truckers back to work while being trained. Wish I had known about this help sooner. I would have taken the training for a new job. I may still. Not sure even after my surgery ill be able to go back to driving. I am so pleased with the positive attitude and encouragement the staff gave me. I thank you all so much for being here to help us truckers and families. I definitely will be asking my company to sponsor and passing the word for donations. Thank you again.

Driver with hernia

Thank you again for your help! Without you, we were looking at possibly having all 5 of the grandkids placed into foster care. St. Christopher’s Truckers Fund has given us a window of time to prevent that from happening.  Your organization has been a blessing to us and we are very grateful for your help.

Driver with shoulder injury

God is amazing! Thank you for all of your help! We are so humbled and grateful-we have cried our eyes out. We will use the money for our rent. You have no idea what a blessing this has been to us.

Driver with broken leg

Thank you to St Christopher Truckers Relief Fund for helping us out. My husband has been a trucker for 25+ years and became very ill  with anaplastic large cell lymphoma and is under going chemo. Because of you’re generosity we were able to catch up on some of our household bills. Thank you.

Driver with cancer

Thank you for paying our house note and power bill. This allowed us to stay in our house another month and relieved so much stress.We are grateful. You are truly “God in shoes”.  God bless you all!

Driver with kidney surgery

My husband, William, is an OTR Driver and our only source of income as I am disabled with Lupus and other related diseases. We have three minor children who still live at home and my husband supports us all. About 2 months ago he became ill with pneumonia primarily and was out of work for 2-1/2 weeks. A friend of his who is also a trucker commented on social media that we should contact the Saint Christopher Trucker’s Fund for assistance. We tried to work things out so that we didn’t need help but in the end we just could not make the numbers add up. We contacted the Truckers Fund and advised of our situation, submitted some minor paperwork and within days was advised that we would receive benefits. What a stress relief! I don’t know where we would be without the assistance provided. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and God Bless you for the work you do.

Driver with pneumonia

I’ve been a trucker since 1988. I’ve had health issues since 1997 since my back was broken. Every time I get better, I go back to driving. This last spinal injury ended my career. Thank you St Christopher Fund for your assistance. I went 6 weeks without income. My company didn’t care, but you did.

Driver with spinal injury

You have impacted my life greatly since I had a heart attack in Denver in January your charity came thru and helped our family with bills I couldn’t cover. I will be forever indebted to your organization.

Driver with heart attack

I just wanted to reach out to you all to thank you for your support during this difficult time. Often times, I’m the one people come running to when they need help and this time it was I that needed help. When I would reach out to others for a favor in getting help….it didn’t happen but when I contacted you all, I found compassion and help in my time of need. I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me on my rent, electric, and auto ins.Because of your help, I get to stay in my home and have power, and no lapse in auto ins. Thank you so much for the help. You all do such a great job at being there for others that you should pat yourselves on the back. May the blessings of God rain upon you all like raindrops..

Driver with broken ankle

It’s hard for me to put into words how grateful I am to your organization. I lost my Job in October and we found out a week before Christmas that my husband (a Truck Driver) had to have emergency surgery to remove a mass from his liver.  Being that his was our only income, you could say we were stressed about our monthly bills and how we would be able to pay them.  Thanks to St. Christopher’s we were able to breathe easier with the help given.  You truly are remarkable and we thank you for the bottom of our hearts.  It’s because of you that we are still living in our beautiful home where my husband was able to recover and get healthy again.  Thank You so much!

Wife of a driver who had surgery

Thank you so very much, maybe I won’t stress so bad now. You guys are lifesavers.

Driver with broken shoulder

I have donated for years never thinking of myself being in need. I’m humbled & grateful in this time of real need for my family. For me, the support coming from my industry warms this Independent’s heart. Humbled, I say thank you….

Driver with syncope

We often made contributions in cash at various events that were going towards this fund. Who knew that one day we would be on the receiving end due to that NASTY cancer?

Tears fill our eyes and smiles in our hearts. Without help from this fund and others, we don’t know how we would get to this point without losing everything.

Merry Christmas!

Blessings to all who have helped, are helping and will continue to help!

Driver with cancer

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a wonderful organization, because of you we can squeak by another month while we go thru this financial hardship.

Driver with shoulder injury

 

Thank you so much & God bless you & St Christopher Fund!!  We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas (you are some of God’s angels!!)

Driver who had a stroke

 

We sincerely appreciate what the St. Christopher Fund has done for us.  We’ve shared the site on our social media outlets and will continue to advocate for you.  Thank you again!

Driver with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Thank you for all you do. When my hubby was sick and needed surgery in August you were there for us. We appreciate you more than you ever know.

bladder surgery

I want to thank you for the work that you do. My husband had a major stroke which ended his trucking career and at the time I wasn’t working and begging companies to please hire me. It was roughest time of my life. Your organization helped me and you have no idea how much we appreciated and needed your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless you and your organization.

Driver with stroke

I would just like to say thank you from both my husband and myself from the bottom of our hearts. My husband has been fighting colon rectal cancer now for 9 years. It has gone first to his lungs and just recently they found a mass on his cerebellum.  He had surgery to remove the mass and it was successful. But, because of the trauma his body has been through in the last year, he is having a very hard time bouncing back.  He is hoping that he can get strong enough to go back to the job that he really loves. Your help at this time has been a God-send. If it wasn’t for your help, we would not have had electricity or a roof over our head.  God Bless you and those that are involved with this great endeavor. We will definitely be encouraging others to donate to this great helping cause. Again, Thank You.

Driver with cancer

We can not express our thankfulness for your generosity.   This has taken a great weight off our shoulders. We cried with relief and appreciation.   I thank you for your prayers. When they say the brotherhood is gone from trucking, that  is incorrect.  This is brotherhood.  This is a miracle to us. Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.

Driver with kidney problems

Thank you once again for the generous gift to help me with my financial responsibilities during my fight with Cancer. This money will be used toward paying my mortgage payment and sure takes a load off worrying about how I would pay this bill.

Driver with cancer

THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY HOUSE FROM DEFAULT. YO AND WHAT YOU DO IS A BLESSING! THANK YOU!

Driver with congestive heart failure

Thank you Julie for helping my wife and I. She passed a year ago June 28th. Just thought I’d let you know. She requested hospice. But your organization helped us in our time of need. You took one stressor off the table. I can’t thank you enough. And you personally were very kind to me.

Driver who's wife died of cancer

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for your financial help with my bills. I had to have a 5 way emergency heart bypass and am not able to work for 3 months. Without your support and caring ,I may have ended up homeless. Thank you so VERY much for your help!! You are a true Godsend and true blessing!! Thank you…

Driver with heart surgery

Thank you so much for all the financial assistance you have given me during my cancer treatments: radiation, chemo therapy and rehabilitation. I hope to return to driving full time within six months with my Multiple Myeloma in complete remission. When I drive, I listen to Tim Ridley every day. I  look forward to sharing my story of how you have helped me. I have all ready told several others how you have been a true blessing to me and how you have helped me after 46 years in business. I am continuing to fight the good fight and getting better thanks to your help.

Driver with cancer

I am so grateful for this truckers fund! They are truly a blessing to me and saved me from being homeless. After leaving the hospital I lost my job and medical benefits and was completely overwhelmed with bills medical costs etc. but st. Christopher worked with me and help saved my home and now I’m caught up with other things. Only sad thing is I may never drive trucks due to my illness but my love for trucking will never die! A few friends got together and helped me get a driver for my truck so my legacy will continue! Again, I thank this wonderful organization for all they have done and will urge all my trucking family to donate!

Driver with bleeding disorder

I cannot Thank you and this organization enough! Terry’s passing has been extremely hard and the financial burden on top has made it extremely harder. I know Terry looks down and grins as he was very grateful for your organization and the help.It may take a little time to pick these pieces back up and piece them together but with Gods help and people like you and this organization it greatly helps to do so.

Wife of a driver who passed away

Thank you so much to the wonderful people at St. Christopher Truckers Fund.  I have been out of work since March and unable to keep my bills paid.  St. Christopher’s Truck Fund has helped us so much.  It is really touching to know that someone out there cares. It is a scary position to be in, not knowing when you can go back to work and how you are going to make ends meet.  These people are caring and they don’t look down on you for needing help.  My many thanks to them.

Driver with kidney stones

You helped me a couple of years ago when I had no where else to turn. Thank you for what you do. Your organization is one who truly does help drivers!

Driver with respiratory problems

My brother was helped by you nearly 3 years ago after suffering a stroke while driving his truck.  He is now stable and able to live on his own.  Although he cannot work, he is managing to get by.  Without your help and the help of many others along the way, God only knows where he would be today.  He is very thankful for the help and support of fellow truckers.  God bless you and your work.

Driver who had a stroke

I Would Like To Say Thank You Again For Y’all Help I was Really Humbled By The Help I Received. I Was Always The One Who Helped Not The One That Needed Help. Please Pass On A Heart Felt Thank You To  Dr. John And Every One At Truckers Fund.

Driver with heart attack

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for everything you did to help our family during our time or crisis. My husband has been able to go back to work, although he has required additional surgery. Your organization is amazing & if there is any way we can help spread the word, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Driver with ruptured spleen

You helped us a couple years ago when Robert  had his strokes.We are doing a lot better now and standing on our own two feet as they say. You guys helped us a lot and if we didnt receive that help we may have lost our home.

Driver who had a stroke

We will always be appreciative of the assistance you gave us.  It was a rough time but thanks to your kindness we were able to face some of the bills and be able to keep on track.

Driver with liver transplant

Thank you so much for your help in getting my meds. It is greatly appreciated

Driver who had quadruple bypass

If it wasn’t for the St. Christopher Fund and the VA I’m not sure how me and family would have made it. I’ve recovered well and back to work

Driver with hand surgery

I became unable to work and OTR work is all I know and have known. I looked for ways to get help from other places and got “No” help.  Then I found St. Christopher Truckers Fund. Thank you very much for helping me; not only me, but my family in our time of need.  If it weren’t for you, our family would be on the street. Again, you are a blessing! Thank you!

  My Husband Had a major major heart attack the one they call the Widowmaker. His heart stopped and EMS brought him back to life. He wasn’t at work when it happened and there was nothing to cover anything financially we were a paycheck to paycheck family. He had heard of st. Christopher’s XM Radio I gave it a try we are nearly homeless as nothing else we could do but worry which the doctor told him not to do. This Fund helped us to save our home. we are so grateful and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! May God bless St.Christopher’s Truckers Fund in abundance is our prayer. Thank you so much.

Wife of a deceased driver

I been grieving the loss of my best friend, soulmate & the love of my life.  I’ve had to deal with stress/worry over finances. I don’t know if you all realize what you truly do for people or not, but not only are you helping me & my kids during the worst time of our lives, you’ve shown me that they’re still good people in this world and have given me a reason to believe again. You all have given me a glimmer of hope in what has been the most hopeless situation. Thank you!! I will most definitely be spreading the word about what a wonderful organization you have. I will also do whatever I can when this is over to help convince people to donate to such an extraordinary organization. I could never thank you all enough. God bless each of you & I pray for the safety and wellbeing of all of Chris’ fellow truck driving family

Thank you just sounds so shallow. God bless you and all the truckers. I promise I will spend the rest of my life telling of your help.

Driver with heart problems

After driving for almost 30 years, I’ve had to come off the road due to heart problems. My last day that I worked was in May 2015. Had a quad bypass operation in July and had an ICD implant this past Feb. Unfortunately I can’t drive commercially with an ICD. Medical bills were piling up and it was a struggle to even make the necessary monthly bills. St. Christopher Fund stepped in a provided enough money to make payment on our monthly bills and give me a head start on next month’s. I am thankful for their help in this difficult time.

Thank you for helping me in my time of need. When my appendix ruptured, you saved me more ways than one. I gain extra love from people I share Gods love to on road and would not have been able if it weren’t for your help. THANK YOU!

Driver with ruptured appendix

I wish I could be there at MATS to personally thank you for the help that you folks at the ST. CHRISTOPHER FUND had given to me during these hard times that I have been in. I am currently starting to get back into the working phase of my career and hope to recover from what has happened to me these past months. I will continue to support the ST. CHRISTOPHER FUND with my donations so that other drivers who are needier than myself can be helped by good folks as yourself, and the drivers, who have unselfishly donated to this cause over time, so that you’re able to help other drivers like myself in times of need. So, to you folks, I tip my hat and again, thanks for the help, and for the service you provide.

Thanks for the generosity and help at a time when needed. It gas given me the time to get proper medical care to help with a catastrophic series of illnesses. The best people around! Thanks

We would like to say how blessed we are to have been helped throughout my freak accident when my foot was amputated October 17, 2015. We can’t say enough thanks to the St Christopher Fund for the bill assistance.Lawrence Wyatt

Billy LyonsThis driver is a cancer survivor, as well as, having a heart attack recently.  SCF was able to offer him financial assistance to get him back on his feet.

With the help of paying those 2 bills, it will give us the break that we so desperately need to finally be able to get the rest caught up to current status and Lord willing, stay caught up from here on out. Every year I’ve always bought numerous bracelets and key chains from TA/Petro locations to hand out to family and friends. It was never in my wildest dreams that I myself would one day be needing assistance from this AWESOME organization. I will be spreading the word to all that will listen in regards to you all.

Driver with spinal injury

Jack Hollowayjack holloway family We would like to graciously thank the St. Christophers Truckers Fund for helping relieve our financial burden after Jack’s surgeries. Jack is a loving husband,  father of 3 boys, with the 4th due in January. Jack is a certified trainer, May Central driver of the year, for JB Hunt Transportion. Unexpectedly,  at the end of August, Jack started to feel very weak, out of breath and just not himself. Luckily, he was on home time when his symptoms started. I rushed him to the hospital,  where it was determined that he needed 3 surgeries,  within 6 days.  These surgeries included a catheterization, open heart surgery with a valve replacement and a pacemaker revision. He spent a total of 15 days in the hospital,  with 6 of those in the ICU. He will be off work for 3 months and the Truckers Fund provided us with  bill assistance. The fund was easy to work with and very quick. On behalf of the entire Holloway family,  we’d like to say Thank You.

Ava Vinson Ava is our 1st child.  She’s two months 14 days old. She was  born full term, very sick.  It was unexpected.  We are holding up.  We are not home from the hospital. Our Ronald McDonald stay is up so we are back to our commute, 90 milis a day to see Ava. She’s at Blythedale Children’s Hospital for rehabilitation, working with her muscular tone and bottle feeding.  She has a g-tube but is taking the bottle slowly. Ava’s next surgery is in July which is for the craniosynostos. Her skull fused too early and it’s putting pressure on her brain. Since her last surgery was rough, the doctors are prepping us for the worst.  There is talk of getting Ava home in a week or two to enjoy a few weeks at home before the surgery,  Ava is great today. She is  starting to move her head more and more. We have faith in God. Doug is looking for work but is having a hard time finding something flexible.  Doug is trying to stay local to find a job.  You guys helped out with our rent.  We are working out June rent, and all the other bills. It’s hard but we have faith and it’s the best to get through this.  Thank you for looking out for us. Thank you for the prayers. Thank you for everything.  #teamavastrong

Let me take this time to thank everyone of you that has been willing to stand behind me and help me out of a hole that I was thinking that I was never going to be able to crawl out of. If it would not have been for you all helping me out in my time of need, I would be out on the street by the end of the month with no place to live. The help that you and your fund have given me by helping me with my rent while I have been going through treatment has saved me from worry about where I was going to live by the end of the month. Thanks again and God Bless you all at Truckers Fund!

To Tonya Love I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for the assistance. Your last name is no coincidence.

Driver with neck & shoulder injury

Thanks for your help in my and my families time of need. I was on the road when my appendix started to give me problems. I had to have immediate surgery in Nashville,TN. Even though I had insurance I did not have short term disability insurance at the time. Being off work for a while I didn’t know how I was going to pay rent. YOU ALL CAME THROUGH TO HELP ME. ***THANK YOU *** AND THANK YOU to all TRUCKERS and others to help me in my time of need.

I would like to say Thank you for the help you gave to my family when I had to go on medical leave. My story goes like this: I came home for a couple days off. I was not feeling well; it was as if I was having trouble with my gallbladder. My son took me took the Emergency Room. They did a CT Scan and immediately sent me to the main ST. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis where 2 days later I was diagnosed with Cancer. Exactly 1 week later I was told I had stage 4 lung cancer, with it being in other areas also. The team In your office was quick to do their best and help me with funds to get through the 1st month until my disability insurance started.

I’m soooo thrilled I don’t know what to say. This is such a blessing!!! Thank God!!! Again….there are not enough words to Thank You. I have not slept in good in a long time wondering if we were going to be homeless next month because we couldn’t pay the house payment. This will give us another month. The Good Lord has helped us this far so I’m holding on to my faith and praying.

Thank you St. Christopher Fund!

Thank you and your team for the help you are willing to give me in such a timely manner. It will really help us out and we do appreciate it.

I’ve been driving since 93 first class B asphalt for my dad’s business then over the road when I was 21 on and off. I decided to drive OTR to support my growing family in 2012. On June 11, 2014 I went for a physical because I’d been feeling like I had the flu and dropping Lbs since January of that year. I went from 230 down to 160. It was a Wednesday afternoon and I went on my second run for Gm to Kansas City from Flint. As I arrived in Kansas City on the 12th my dispatch and boss kept calling me  asking how I was doing and where exactly I was at. I told them on 35 south just past the Pilot in  Karney, Mo when an ambulance and state trooper pulled me over and a driver for the company hopped in my truck. The medic said I was bad and to go with them asap.  As I arrived at Liberty Medical Center they informed me I had leukemia and my blood hemoglobin was 3 and at level 5 you have a heart attack and die.  Little did I know that was to be my last ride in a rig.They set me up after 5 days of blood infusions and iron with a flight home. While in Liberty the social worker gave me a print out with the Saint Christopher’s Fund info on it. I’ve heard it advertised on xm and red eye radio a few times and donated at different truck stops but never thought you’d all save my family’s home not once but twice. Me and Elisa were married on Dec 31 with Jacob age 5 Tanner age 4 and Olivia age 2 now, there with family and friends.With the prayers and support I continue to battle cancer hoping to one day drive again.Thank you all for the prayers and the help you gave my family.

I am so happy – I CAN SEE!!  Thank you so much for this help! We are so blessed to have you working for us in this desperate chapter in our lives! I cannot express the gratitude I feel!    Thank y’all so very much and God bless you.

Driver, after cataract surgery

We would like to say thank you to the St. Christopher Fund. My husband Bill had been driving for 20 yrs until he was diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in September 2014. This is a progressive non curable disease. Upon finding this out this is a disqualifying condition for driving a commercial vehicle he had to stop driving. Unable to work due to his condition, we became a one income family. Needing help we thought about the bracelets we had bought to help the St. Christopher for many years reminding us there was help out there. After the first call we were in contact with Shannon within 24 hrs and had the process started. We are now able to keep a roof over our heads until social security disability is approved. Thank you again for caring for our truck driving family! Bless you.

Thanks so much! We really needed this help. We greatly appreciate all your fund has done for us. I don’t know what we would have done without you folks!  Thank you is not nearly enough but please know how much we truly appreciate all of your help and compassion.

Thank You Shannon and everyone at ST CHRISTOPHER FUND for your generosity and the help you have given my family in our time of need.You are the only charity fund that helped us and for that we are thankful.Every little bit helps in a time of need. Again thanks to all and happy holidays. Okay people, PLEASE give to St Christopher fund, even if it’s only 1 dollar.  If not for them, we would not have been able to survive my 2 months off of work. They really are a Godsend. The next time you are in a Petro or T/A and they ask you to buy a bracelet, you can be assured that the money really does go to help truck drivers.

HonerkampAgain….there are not enough words to Thank You. I have not slept good in a long time wondering if we were going to be homeless next month because we couldn’t pay the house payment. This will give us another month. The Good Lord has helped us this far so I’m holding on to my faith and praying. I will definItely mention St. Christopher Truckers Fund to everyone I know!!!

Thank you and the St. Christopher Fund for helping us during this most difficult time of need.  Not only did you review and approve our case expediently, you made a big difference.  The offering that you are giving to us will help us get caught up on our house payments that we are behind on.  Words alone cannot express how much we appreciate the help.  The tests that we have gone through this past year has become a true testimony.   Thank  you for the blessing, St. Christopher Fund!

I would like to say thank you Julie for your help.  Your group are my angels.  Thank you so very much!!!

Scott Lavigne   Thank you so much.  Your kindness will allow us to buy some time as we work to climb out of the hole.
